With Kristen McDermaid
$50 per child/adult pair (10% discount for members) materials included.
Students will have the opportunity to hand build with clay, as well as use the pottery wheel in this class! You will first each make a cup on the pottery wheel for each member of your family. Then, make a hand built tray for those cups to be served on. Once the pieces are built, students will have the opportunity to experiment with vibrant glazes and decorate their finished pieces. Get creative with family members and join Kristen in creating timeless clay cups that you can cherish with your family for years to come! Due to drying and firing times, pottery will be ready to pick up 10 days after the class. Please note that children under 7 cannot use a wheel independently as they are not strong enough and must share a wheel with an adult!

Work with a live model and demystify the process of depicting a realistic likeness. Through careful observation, we’ll focus on the fundamental mechanics of blocking in the head and face, using essential techniques and concepts of the picture plane, measuring, proportion, line, positive and negative space, value, volume, basic anatomy, and composition. We’ll work primarily in charcoal, as well as in pastel and pan pastel, launching on an adventure that for many is a lifetime pursuit.

5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche is a frolicsome little play that ventures into everybody’s favorite- absurdism! In 1956, with the ever-present threat of nuclear war looming over them, the widows of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein meet in a renovated community center for a special annual event, where the prize-winning quiche will be declared in a much-anticipated ceremony. Will they be able to keep their cool when in the midst of their beloved annual event, Communists descend on their idyllic town?
“A hit at the New York International Fringe Festival last summer, this slap-happy, five-character comedy seems destined to attract a cult following.” – Ben Brantley, NY Times
SHOULD I SEE IT?:
-What Is 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche Like?
Audience members are given a name tag when they enter the theater, inviting them to participate in a women’s community meeting led by the cast members (but don’t worry—you won’t get called up on stage). At only 80 minutes, the show is fast and funny as the night of shocking comedy (and audience participation) flies along. By the time the final quiche crumbles, you’ll feel like a part of the atomic, retro-age narrative—and you might find yourself craving quiche just as badly as the show’s five leading ladies.
-Is 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche Good for Kids?
Definitely not. This is not really a family-friendly show by most standards- the sexual innuendo piles up like layers in a freshly prepared quiche; adults will enjoy this outrageous night of comedy, but the subject matter is probably best if it’s not served up to children under 13.
